Hey Guys

I'm currently doing research on technology to make managing a painting company more fun, productive and profitable.

I have a question.

As a Painter/Contractor what are the biggest problems you face on a day-to-day basis?

Either post on here or pm me personally.

Mike

As I am a one man show, its hard to be everywhere at once. Looking at jobs, sending estimates, going to the paint store and doing the work.
Don't get me wrong, I love painting, but sometimes its challenging.

Exterior scheduling is the hardest due to weather delays.
Dealing with customers that "forget" that it rained for close to a month straight.

Weather was challenging this year. If I cancelled, it did not rain. If I sent the crew in, it rained. Everytime the weather forecast was somewhat ambiguous, that is what happened except one time.

I would say getting underbid by a hack that skimps on preparation.
